This thesis is designed to support that process through the evaluation of potential strategies and tools for the efficient and financially-viable delivery of biophilic urbanism. A multiple-case study research approach was used to answer the research questions. The results provide urban planners and stakeholders with a basis for enabling and stimulating wider uptake.
